Britannia has been the female embodiment of Britain for centuries, symbolising strength and tradition, with a spirit that is ageless. She first appeared on the coins of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, before being revived in the seventeenth century, where she has since featured on the coins of every British monarch from Charles II through to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who reigned for 70 years from 1952 to 2022. The tradition lives on with the latest release in this bullion range the 2023 Britannia bullion silver coin – the first coinage to feature the portrait of His Majesty King Charles III. In 1987, sculptor Philip Nathan reimagined Britannia for a new bullion coin, presenting the icon with carefully chosen symbols of Britain’s identity. The award-winning design has become a modern classic, so highly regarded that only The Royal Mint is able to strike genuine Britannia coins featuring Philip Nathan’s interpretation.
